Here's a #prepper tip. If you gotta move fast you want stuff in one place, right? Well what's more Alaskan than a 5 gallon bucket!
Throw a couple of trash/contractor bags in, flashlights/headlamps, vital documents, socks, gloves, hats n space blankets
Primus stove and couple of fuel canisters, maybe a cheap burner phone (circulate the number to Fam) a transistor radio, small cookset (for size of your crew).
And you don't just need one bucket, either. But they are easy to carry, hold lots and are "multipurpose" lol.
Food: freeze dried, granola, at least a gallon jug of water to last a day or so.
Again, mobility is key.
Dont normalize disasters. Always be ready for something to happen.
One of the best ways is to invest a little time and money into your kit.

(1) #Earthquake near #Anchorage, Alaska in the last hour.

Moderately deep & strong, expect some damage, but loss of life unlikely. Magnitude is usually downgraded from initial level.

Best info source:…
(3) Some photos from around Anchorage that I've seen on Twitter. In New Zealand we have an earthquake of this type about once or twice a year. It is scary, but thankfully little damage is done.

#DropCoverHold is the best advice. More:
(4) If you feel an earthquake when you're on a beach or within a few miles of the coast, be aware of #tsunami risk.

"If it's long or strong, get gone." There is no time for warning sirens or messages.

If you don't feel it, that means any tsunami is hours away. You have time.
